Letter to FEC Chair Ellen Weintraub Re BCRA Violations

Dear Ms. Weintraub:

On November 21, 2002, the undersigned organizations filed a complaint with the Commission against the Leadership Forum and individuals associated with it, and against the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC), as well as against two Democratic party entities and individuals associated with them.

The complaint alleged, in part, that the Leadership Forum is an entity "directly or indirectly established, financed, maintained or controlled" by the NRCC and was therefore operating as an illegal scheme to raise and spend soft money for "Federal election activity" in the 2004 election, in violation of the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act (BCRA).
